Frequently Asked Questions
YOU ASKED, WE ANSWERED
HOW MUCH SHOULD I EXPECT FOR A LOAN ON MY ITEM?
Loan amounts vary according to the value of the item. There is no minimum dollar amount allowed on a pawn transaction but the maximum amount may be set by state pawn laws. Your loan amount will be determined according to other factors as well such as demand and condition of the item.
HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE VALUE OF THE ITEM?
We base the value of the item on current appraised value, it's current condition and the ability to sell the item. We use research tools that they have at their disposal to determine an item's value and get you the most money for the item. The appraisal process varies depending on the type of item - for example, jewelry is evaluated differently than a DVD player. All items that pawn shops by or pawn are tested to ensure that they work properly.
HOW DOES A PAWN WORK?
A pawn is another term for a collateral loan. We lend money on items of value ranging from gold and diamond jewelry, musical instruments, televisions, electronics, tools, household items, firearms, and more. Some pawn shops may specialize in certain items. Loans are based on the value of the collateral. When a customer pays back the loan, their merchandise is returned to them. A customer may also choose to surrender his or her collateral as payment in full. Pawn shops may offer extensions/renewals (where permitted by state law).
